Forum: faqs Subject: the system is having a hard time ?

Hello, I am trying to read an archived web page, but keep
getting this message on a blank page.

"You have been banned!"

"Or the system is having a hard time and currently cooling down.(note: refreshing this page more than once every 2 seconds can and will get you ip banned. So don't come whining when you can't access the site anymore)"

What is wrong? the message is confusing, I don't know
if I am banned or it is just a system overload?

I can find no information regarding this problem, is there
any way to confirm my status?

The page I am trying to read is

http://web.archive.org/web/20080411075736/http://forum.cheatengine.org/viewtopic.php?t=26540&;postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=105

I can access the preceding pages and the following pages
in the archived forum post without any problem, but the
above URL is giving the scary warning posted in my first message.

I have:

The Wayback Machine hasn't archived a capture for that URL.
Here's a capture taken 0 minutes ago from the live web that will become part of the permanent archive in the next few months.

And then a warning that topic doesn't exist.
So perhaps you've been requesting too many pages that are not archived? There might be a quota to prevent people from adding too much stuff to the queue on their own, I don't know.
